Croce is located at 720 metres above sea level and belongs to the old parish of Ampugnani in Castagniccia. It is a village with no seafront, surmounted by medium-sized mountains: its highest point is at 1655 metres above sea level, near Monte Goio. This territory is part of Corsica's regional natural park and is very wooded and green. Croce is crossed by the Polveroso stream, the main watercourse, and by Fium'Alto stream.
The village is part of two natural areas of ecological, faunal and floristic interest: Châtaigneraies de la Petite Castagniccia and Hêtraies du massif du San Petrone.
Art lovers can visit the church of St Cesario (17th century), which was rebuilt between 1660 and 1701 and which is located in the centre of the village. Inside the church there are 23 objects which are part of the General inventory of France's monuments and artistic treasures and a painting classified historical monument, The Virgin Mary with the Holy Rosary and with St. Dominic and St. Catherine. In Poggio you will find the chapel of St Lucy (18th century), where there are five objects which are part of the General inventory of France's monuments and artistic treasures. If you like walking, you can run into the ruins of the old chapel of St Marcel, which was already in a poor state in the 17th century.
Croce is crossed by the D515 road. This village is located at 46 km from Corte and at 57 km from Bastia.
